Least invasive with NOTES

A growing body of clinical evidence is demonstrating the feasibility of an abdominal surgical procedure technique that is even less invasive than laparoscopic surgery (even SSL, or single site laparoscopy), and that is "NOTES", or natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery.
 
In particular, Ethicon Endo-surgery presented data at the 2009 Digestive Disease Week conference that NOTES can be performed successfully even without laparoscopic assistance, making it a "pure" NOTES procedure.

See link on the Ethicon Endo-Surgery Toolbox, to be evaluated in an IDE trial.
